On my 2002 Ford Explorer XLS manual transmission I spelled it out letting off the clutch too quick and now it won't start I'm only getting clicking sound when I turn the key what could it be

Most likely a loose or corroded connection at the battery. The jarring of the popping the clutch may have shifted the battery stressing loose or corroded battery. Check, clean and tighten the connections to the battery. Check the battery voltage on the battery posts themselves and on the battery cable lugs when you're trying to crank it over. bad connections will show a large drop in voltage at the terminals but not on the battery posts themselves

My 1993 Ford Explorer axle problem.

Get a second person to move the tire back and forth watch to see where the movement is once you identify the part go to the local parts store that have pictures of the front axle and show them where it's loose. and you will need to replace the part and get an alignment. It could be any of the following connecting rod, tie rod end, stabilizer arm or drag ling joint bad. if it was up and down then it would be king pins or wheel bearing loose.

1998 ford Explorer starting

check your ground cables for corrosion or looseness- it starts slow bwcause everything is still cold, after a few seconds of cranking the voltage heats the cables up and makes a better connection... also check your positive cables.
